EPC/WC 2011 - Family Day at the Airfield

Most of the teams are here now. We get slowly better weather and training jumps for today will start at about 15:00 hrs. The first 15 minute call is announced...

... and at the end of the day, there were 23 loads done. In the late evening portugese pilot Joe arrived with the second DO28 aircraft . He could watch a closed cloud layer all over Germany during his ferry flight from DZ Eisenach to DZ Saarlouis.

 

Arrivals... Susan and Fay, both webmasters from the FAI/IPC website arrived too. And Kurt from NSL News arrived in the evening. So tomorrow you can expect a lot of reports and comments from the competition, esp. from the Draw which is scheduled for 17:00 hrs CEST.

 

Helmut, head of organization commitee, announced the competition in the local TV-station Saarländischer Rundfunk. The report is available in the internet mediathek of the broadcast station (Link).

 

Soon... With all four aircrafts and a very good weather forecast, tomorrow will be a busy day with official training jumps for all teams. Helmut wants to thank all the teams for their safe landings shown in the last days! Stay safe, esp. because load numbers increase now...
